ok question to you all,, my child got invited to a birthday party he told me who before I read the invite and when I finally read it I noticed there was two names on it, hhmm so I asked my child if this friend has a sister in class too he said he didnt think so, so when I called to RSVP I was told by the mother that they are twins and I didnt need to feel like I needed to get them both a present all without even asking? wow should I feel guilty now? well nope I am only getting one cause my child doesnt know the sibling who is in another class as I found out from another parent.. whats your thoughts..

I also am a mother of twins and believe me the mother will not mind one less gift. My girls b-day is in December and we do a toys for tot collection that people can bring a toy to instead of a present just so I can keep my sanity with all the new stuff. I also didn't want people to feel like they had to bring two gifts. If you wanted to send something with your child and not leave out the b-day girl your child doesn't know you could send a cheap board game for them to share or a birthday card for the other child with a Mcdonalds git card for an ice cream or something little and silly like that for both kids. I wouldn't worry about it and actually I like when things occasionally aren't totally equal, fair and the same for my girls, it's a good life lesson for kids that often get treated as a pair and not individual people. However you handle it will be fine:) Hope your kiddo has fun at the party!
